After traveling thousands of kilometres this month to photograph some really amazing events, I finally got back to Brisbane to photograph yet another beautiful wedding. Could a wedding photographer enjoy his job any more? I don’t think so!
I hear a lot of stories about how people fall in love and eventually get engaged. However, last night when I was at Rachel and Andrew’s wedding I found myself thinking “You go girl!”. Rachel knew she wanted Andrew and after hearing her wedding speech last night, it was clear she wasn’t going to give in until she got him! I won’t go into the details (though I’d love to), but I will say that Rachel’s story of determination and achievement is an inspiring one!
It’s my job to see things, but it didn’t require the eye of a wedding photographer to notice that Rachel looked like she’d experienced a very special moment in her life.
Rachel has endured more challenges than I could ever bear to imagine, and commendably; Andrew has been there through it all – supporting Rachel at every turn. It’s this reason I have to take this opportunity to say that I have so much admiration for the both of them!
I haven’t looked back through all of the photos from yesterday’s wedding as yet, but of the ones I have seen so far I chose this one to share. Rachel’s expression in this image sums up the whole story behind her quest to get her man. For someone so lovely, considering everything she’s been through, it’s really nice to see her looking so at peace.
